Opened and closed the show with some 78 rpm recordings from archive.org. Vera Lynn's version of "I'm in the Mood for Love". I wanted a dirty scratchy record. Instead it had been processed to reduce the noise. So hey! I added my own noise. And then Lizzie Miles gives us "Cotton Belt Blues" to close out the show. Yea I know it's not ambient music. If I could explain why this works I would be a writer instead of dj'ing this show. Suffice it to say that it works for me, and I hope it works for you!
Also, Vera Lynn is most famous (now anyway) for singing "We'll Meet Again" at the end of Kubrick's "Doctor Strangelove".
Thanks to Pavonine for providing me with some of her unreleased material for tonight's show. Please use headphones (good ones if you have them) when listening to this show especially. Her music can be very subtle. Fantastic.
Played a lot of drone/dark ambient music from the seemingly defunct Okkulth Records netlabel. Great stuff there. More later. And the new release by Digital Mass The Murk 2. Really nice, meditative piece. The drone reminds me of Nurse With Wound's "Salt Marie Celeste". Which is a good thing. A very good thing.
